There are some people who believe that it’s rare to find something truly original in media these days. This recent social media post is causing quite a stir among netizens and it has something to do with the Binibining Pilipinas pageant. A Facebook user shared a video of Binibining Pilipinas Grand International 2018 Eva Psychee Patalinjug‘s answer and a screenshot of Nadine Lustre‘s post back in 2017.
Netizens noticed that Eva Patalinjug ‘s answer during the question and answer portion last Sunday was exactly the same with Mega magazine’s campaign last year. On the question about, what is the role of beauty queens on the pursuit of the country’s economy success, Patalinjug uttered the same words as the quote from the magazine.
Read the caption and Patalinjug’s answer below and try to compare it for yourself.
“A role of the beauty queen is to be a voice. I am here to make a message to all of you. In these times of uncertainty and fear that have seemingly taken over our country, we have remained steadfast and unfazed amidst all the challenges. As a united nation, what we can do is to set aside our political differences, forget our academic and social preferences, and let love and loyalty for our country rise above all. So we can march towards our future in the hopes of making a peaceful country.”
Watch this video and decide for yourself if the two statements are truly similar.
